Adecuate surgical treatment is mandatory in order to achieve cure in patients with breast cancer. Breast surgeons have to choice the best surgical technique over the breast and over the axillary nodes. Two new surgical aproaches have been implemented in the last decade: oncoplastic conservative surgery and sentinel lymph node biopsy. Oncoplastic surgery provides oncologic safety results and good cosmetic outcome. In this paper the technical steps and indications of different oncoplastic techniques in conservative breast surgery are review. Concerning to axillary surgery sentinel lymph node biopsy is the gold standard. However there are several controversial points in sentinel node biopsy referring to indications, identification and histological findings.
